Have you ever experienced living in a coastal village? A place where the river estuary carries you through a variety of flora and fauna, leading to the heart of the town where distinct elements of coastal village architecture can be found?

Nestled on a high bluff overlooking the May River, Bluffton originally served as a home to native American tribes. They fished, hunted, and gathered oysters in the waters throughout the South Carolina Lowcountry.

The Yemassee Wars

Around 1670, Lord Cardass, leader of the nearby Scottish settlement in Beaufort, invited the Yemassee people to establish settlements in the area.

If you recall, the real estate crash of 2008 resulted in approximately a 30-35% reduction in housing value across all of the gated communities in the Lowcountry. There had been a “run up” of prices built on a panic buying of “flip” buyers owning many properties outside their financial capabilities. Banks were lending money like it was water, and when the world stopped in September 2008 banks and locals were caught with an enormous amount of useless debt and foreclosures were everywhere. The irresponsible buying and lending resulted in the collapse of a glass house of poor real estate decisions. Fortunately, most communities recovered their value over the years and recently escalation has been through the roof. What’s different this time as the real estate…

The plan of attack needs to be agreed upon and understood by each side and then executed effectively for success.
